      "Post-Copulatory Sexual Selection and Female Mating Vocalizations in Primates" Post-copulatory sexual selection operates through two main mechanisms: sperm competition and post-copulatory female.   Second, I examined the evolutionary relationship between the morphological correlates of pre- and postcopulatory competition (i.e., between sexual dimorphism and testis size) because polygamous lemurs, in contrast to other polygamous primates, lack sexual by: In Darwin’s book, The Descent of Man (), he proposed the concept of sexual selection, which was the competition for the attention of females through the use of bright plumage. These features such as the peacock’s enormous tail feathers (Freeman & Herron, ) and the lion’s mane are examples of how these features help competition of mating success amongst males, demonstrating that.

The evolution of brain size and complexity in the Order Primates is widely regarded as the hallmark of primate evolutionary by:   Modes of reproductive competition in males and females.

Fights among males are frequent and severe in many polygynous species, as in chacma baboons (Papio ursinus, (a), picture credit: Elise Huchard) but also occur among females, as in meerkats (Suricata suricatta, (b), picture credit: Andrew Young).Male infanticide is common in many mammals, including many polygynous Cited by: Sexual selection and reproductive competition in primates: New perspectives and directions Article in American Journal of Human Biology 16(2) March with 19 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

In it the author first summarizes the latest findings on the sexuality of female primates, giving special emphasis to their patterns of mate selection, and then utilizes the primate data as a springboard for a provocative interpretation of women's sexual behavior."Cited by: Sexual selection in humans concerns the concept of sexual selection, introduced by Charles Darwin as an element of his theory of natural selection, as it affects selection is a biological way one sex chooses a mate for the best reproductive success.

Sexual Selection and Reproductive Competition in Insects explores the biological mechanisms underlying intrasexual reproductive competition as a driving force in sexual selection in insects.

Darwin () drew particular attention to the thick manes of male baboons, the bright facial coloration of male mandrills, and the large canines of male gorillas as sexually selected traits, and his first scientific paper on sexual selection famously concerned the “brightly-coloured hinder ends and adjoining parts.

Primates adjust the size of the feeding group based on how much food is in a patch. Primates that expend more energy tend to be more successful and obtain higher quality food. Primates who live farther away from the equator tend to be more successful due to the variety of foods allowed by the seasons.

Comparative analyses of the anatomy, reproductive physiology, and behaviour of extant primates and other mammals can offer important insights into the origins of human sexual behaviour, allowing us to reconstruct the origins of human mating systems, the evolution of sexual attractiveness, patterns of mate choice, and copulatory behaviour.
